Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Sunderland?

The only player John Carver says is available who wasn’t two weeks ago against Arsenal, is Mehdi Abeid.

So I can see only nineteen (at the very most) players being possibly involved tomorrow.

The Algerian mdfielder and these other eighteen who were on duty for that game against the Gunners:

Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Gouffran, Ameobi, Cabella, Perez

(subs) Gutierrez, Armstrong, Elliot, Obertan, Riviere, Satka, Kemen

Key to my selection is getting Jonas in at left-back to free up Jack Colback  to hopefully form a partnership in the middle of the pitch to win the battle there.

I predict the line-up and formation below can surely raise their game and help a desperate Sunderland a step closer to relegation…
